Personal Care Assistant (Spinal Injury, Tunbridge Wells)

We're Looking for Personal Care Assistants


Tunbridge Wells

Do you have experience of supporting people who have a spinal injury? Are you committed to making a difference to someone's life?

Our client is a 29-year-old male who sustained a spinal injury following a motorcycle accident. Despite experiencing paralysis, our client has moved from the rehabilitation centre in which he was supported to his own home in Tunbridge Wells. Superior Healthcare is now responsible for building the team of people who will support him to live independently and build his new life.

We are seeking three or four committed Personal Care Assistants to join our client's team to work regular days, nights or a combination of the two. You must be able to commit to at least two 12-hour shifts each week.

Suitable applicants will have to be mature, considerate and have an empathetic nature - as well as a patient manner. You will appreciate that at times, our client's situation can lead to frustration but recognise that your participation as a reliable member of his team will enable him to achieve the security that he seeks. Although experience of supporting someone who has a spinal injury would be an advantage, it is not essential as the opportunity to complete specialist spinal injury training will be provided. Our client does require full assistance to ensure that his personal care needs are met.

If you feel that you meet the criteria, we would like to have an informal chat with you. If you believe the opportunity is the right one for you, you will have the chance to meet our client before proceeding and, if successful, a full induction as well as ongoing support from a Nurse Manager will be provided.

You must hold a full, clean driving licence.

We'll give you

* £11.72 - £15.46 per hour depending on shift (rate inclusive of holiday pay) and additional enhancements for bank holidays

* Free DBS check

* Blue Light Card

* Superior Healthcare Lottery

* Breakfast Club

* Christmas saver scheme

* Career progression opportunities

* Extensive support from Nurse Managers and Field Care Supervisors

* Outstanding in-house training and CPD courses

* Support from Mental Health First Aiders

* Bonuses of up to £2,000 via our Refer a Friend benefit scheme

You'll need

* To enjoy providing one-to-one care

* An understanding of personal care needs and the moving and handling of people with a spinal injury (although further CPD training will be provided)

* To work at least two regular shifts per week

Who we are
